    4 INSANE methods of customizing 3ds Max UI, and the smart one.


    Michał here from CG BBQ YouTube channel.

    A new video about customizing 3ds Max UI for archviz is coming!

    We published it some time ago on GarageFarm.NET Academy, but an updated version is going to appear on the CG BBQ channel devoted only to 3ds Max tutorials.

    Unfortunately, I went crazy in the process of making the remake.

    See you soon!
